Collins, Judy - Bullgine Run Lyrics




Well, the smartest clipper you could find
Heave away, haul away
Is the Margot Evans on the Black Ball Line
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run

Tell me now, are you most done?
Heave away, haul away
Every day we're closer to home
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run

Well, tell me now, are you bound to go
Heave away, haul away
Off to Greenland where there's ice and snow?
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run

Tell me now, are you bound to sail
Heave away, haul away
Off to Greenland to catch the whale?
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run

Well, I though I heard my captain say
Heave away, haul away
"In another week we'll get more pay"
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run

Tell me now, are you most done?
Heave away, haul away
Every day we're closer to home
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run

Well, the smartest clipper you could find
Heave away, haul away
Is the Margot Evans on the Black Ball Line
Clear away the track and let the bullgine run

    Love Judy Collins from Limerick, Ireland

    Going back to this early part of her career makes you realize what a tremendous artist she has developed into spanning so many styles over the years The discipline of maintaining her health so that her strength and stamina would support her as an ever evolving treasured performer is one of the reasons her career has lasted so long Judy Collins is truly a natural phenomenon who has impacted countless others not only as a fine musician but as a great human being

    Back when it was a sailing song, did they sing it when changing tack?

    nigel Mc Hugh

    A Bullgine was a little steam engine that ran up and down a narrow gauge track on a pier or dock side, hauling goods to and from sailing ships.

    I have looked for this for YEARS; heard a version by the now-defunct band "Eaglebone Whistle" when I was at Texas A&M in College Station. I've Googled m'fingers off trying to find them or ANY of their music. THANK YOU!

    Me too, I had a tv show audio taped in the sixties, might have been Grand Ole Opry ( a rare showing here) and recall two guys singing East Virginia fast, also.
